Jakes, Jamaica

  • Ideal for Weddings & Honeymoons
  • Especially Romantic
  • Pool
  • Spa
A bohemian, unique destination - Jakes is located in Jamaica's Treasure Beach area on the south coast.  The hotel came sixth in the 'Top Resorts in the Caribbean' category in the Conde Nast Traveller Magazine 2016 Readers' Choice Awards.  
These beachfront properties are family owned and have been created by Sally Henzell, its founder who, as a set designer was inspired by Gaudi’s buildings in Barcelona.  With this vision, the family has made unique accommodation and built a sports park across from the hotel to promote fitness and wellbeing in the community too.
 
With a mosaic-tiled seawater swimming pool, Jakes rooms, suites and cottages all front onto the ocean or have garden views.  There is as much outdoor as indoor living space for each property. The accommodation features comfortable living spaces, deluxe bedrooms with luxurious beds and antique and hand crafted furniture, ceiling fans, Louvre windows and bamboo blinds.  The use of local artwork, glass, bead and shell fretwork adds to the bohemian feel.
 
Jakes has two restaurants serving fresh homemade food and uses only the finest produce from local farmers.  The gourmet kitchen-style restaurant has a seasonal market menu which changes daily and where 'fresh' is the order of the day with wonderful fish, crab and lobster, all caught in an eco-friendly manner.  Jack Sprat Pizza and Seafood Restaurant is located in its very own bay and boasts the best pizza on the island!  If you're planning a day out, the kitchen staff are more than happy to prepare a picnic basket for your trip. 
 
The Driftwood Spa has a menu of Caribbean treatments and holistic techniques to promote a feeling of wellbeing.  Yoga classes are held throughout the day on the yoga deck with its180-degree view of the Caribbean Sea on the top of the spa.
 
As a guest at Jakes, you are encouraged to adopt a carefree attitude and treat it as a second home.
